Each March and September, Industrial Members meet with BSAC Faculty and Researchers on the campus of the beautiful and historic University of California, Berkeley, for a three-day conference collectively referred to as the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) Meeting. Each day of the conference presents different opportunities to learn about and discuss BSAC Research.
BSAC Faculty Exhibition & Showcase: A faculty poster session where BSAC Co-Directors staff a poster representing their areas of research and interest to encourage informal discussion with Industrial Members. This is an opportunity to introduce yourself and your interests directly to BSAC Faculty.
